Friends of the Children-Portland
April 8, 2013

My husband and I are very impressed by the successes of Friends of the Children. Upon coming into the program in kindergarten or first grade, each child is guaranteed a mentor for the next twelve years. At the Friendraiser each May, we hear about the accomplishments of children in the program. FOC has a high percentage of children who stay in school, avoid teen parenthood and stay out of the criminal justice system. Last summer I volunteered for the summer reading program and was very pleased to observe and be a small part of a well organized program that helps at-risk children.

I'm a supporter of Friends of the Children. As a parent and former teacher I appreciate the stability and support a group can add to a child's life. Having a long term "friend" who can help both academically and emotionally makes a huge difference for children who do not have a strong support system.

The Great!
